Near the pier from the previous photo I found these birds trying to hide before the wind and sand. I noticed that swans turn their head back to avoid wind on their eyes. Unfortunatelly seagulls haven`t so long necks...;)
You can see how bad weather is really bad for our little fellows...;)

About my camera - it was sanded and then showered by the salt water and I was getting out sand from my eyes all the night :)

Hej!
No Henryk, ladnie dales radę, podziwiam za wytrwalosc wzgledem zjawisk atmosferycznych i za foto oczywiscie. Bardzo fajnie ten pedzacy piasek daje jazzu. Podoba mi się kompozycja no i zlowrogie niebo.

Hi Henryk

That looks pretty uncomfortable weather. The blowing of the sand is well captured, and the sky looks really menacing. It is no wonder birds choose to migrate! Congratulations on your composition, and bravery to risk self and camera in these conditions. TFS

Witam Henryku! swietne zdjecie!przepiekne ujecie! prawdziwy dramat na horyzoncie!bardzo mi sie podoba!
Pozdrawiam, Aga

Henryk,
Interesting that the blowing sands give the impression of an even wider angle. Great dramatic sky. Sure looks miserable out there
Cheers

Hi Henryk! Everything I wanted to say is well said in the above comments. Well done!

Witaj Henryku

Swietna praca. zarowno kompozycja jak i moment ktory uchwyciles. warte bylo poswiecenia. ciezkie niebo daje znakomity klimat a przedzierajacy sie blekit pkazuje ze walka trwa :) labedzie dobrze dopelniaja kadr (dla mnie sa dopelnieniem bo preferuje krajobrazy dla kogos innego moga byc glownym motywem)

Hello Henryk,
It looks like a page from National Geographic magazine.The dramatic sky and this lovely foreground with the swans creates an excellent image.A very good one!

Greetings,

Witaj,
Bardzo sympatyczny opis do tej pięknej sceny.
Malarskie kolory i dobra kompozycja.
Wiatr, który daje się odczuć dzięki lecącemu nad ziemią piaskowi nadaje zdjęciu dynamizmu.

Hi Henryk,

Very danger for you camera the fine sand together with a lot wind, also the salt water are a danger!
Very impressive background through the cloudies sky, very well composition and nice colours! Thanks for sharing.

Have a nice day,

hi henryk
outstanding shot, really good one, difficult to fight against the wind as geese.
the dramatic sky to weigh down the scene as apocalypse.

very very well done and well seen.
congratulations

Hi Henryk.

My compliments for this picture. The composition with the swans waiting for the rain is lovely.

Obviously, the sky is amazing!

Witaj Henryku,
Wszystko jakby zamarło w oczekiwaniu na chwilę chocby ciszy. A wiatr wieje niosąc ostry piasek po plaży, chmury niskie i groźne zaś ptactwo jakby chciało zakryć oczy przed tym widokiem. Dobry, dynamiczny kadr, niesamowity nastrój sztormowej pogody, świetne wykonanie.
Pozdrawiam,
Jurek

hejo :D
widząc zdjęcie i cały efekt musze powiedzieć że ten piasek w oczach się opłacił ;D łabądki tak piękne ze z pewnościa bez ptasiej grypy :) wógle całe zdjęcie jest świetne: widać latający piasek (powód zapiaszczonego aparatu i oczu ;)), ptaki, burzowe niebo przez, które jednak widać prześwity błękitu, groźne wzburzone morze...

Hy Henryk
the best of this picture is the expositure of birds aqnd the softnest, the dinamism of the sand! The darkness upside makes it dramatic, so the light on the floor, and the white(or nearly white) is like a special effect!

Hello Henrik,
It is really magnificent. I like!
The pov is excellent as well as the centring.
A photo on which we have the impression to live the live storm.
A magnificent "picture" in the colors which constrastent pleasantly and a sky which contributes very hardly to this very special atmosphere. A magic moment which you arrested marvelously.
Best regards
Denise

piekne uchwycnie nieba, widac w nim zlo ktore sie ukywa. A ten ruch piask jest zdumiewajacy.

An excellent presentation of an uneasy/unquiet atmosphere, with good, moody dark tones. Such a strong feel of dramatism!
I said I like windy days but this one looks a bit anxious even to me :) - those kind of days that stirs up your thoughts.
A wonderful composition. I would put it into my favourites but... too many thoughts :))))
I hope your camera is OK, we would like to see more pictures from you :)
Best wishes.

Hello Henrik,
The light of this photo is simply beautiful as is the whole composition itself. The menacing sky is really impressive and beautiful at the same time creating such a strong atmosphere. I also like the diagonals they you got with the sand and waves lines.
An excellent composition going to my fav's.
Cheers.

Witaj Henryku,
jestes dla mnie niedoscignionym mistrzem na TE jesli chodzi o kreowanie niepowtarzalnej atmosfery twoich prac... A tutaj jeszcze najblizszy moich zainteresowan temat, czyli ptaki... no i jak tutaj nie wpasc w zachwyt i euforie...?! Skomentuje wiec jednym slowem: REWELACJA!
Pozdrawiam,
Andrzej

Witaj Henryku.

Milczenie lepiej wyraża zachwyt niż słowa,
postaram się jednak napisać parę słów...

Na tym zdjęciu oddałeś niesamowity nastrój tego miejsca, a przede wszystkim chwili. Kolory są niesamowite, głębokie, a w przypadku błękitu - groźne. Uwagę przykuwa rozwiewany przez wiatr piasek (wygląda jakby była na plaży zamieć :)), a także kolor tego piachu. Śliczne są również łabędzie (ładnie komponuje się żółć szyj tych ptaków w połączeniu z bielą ich piór).

Mistrzowskie zdjęcie...
Moje uznanie. Chylę czoła przed Mistrzem...

Serdecznie pozdrawiam.

Impressive storm clouds and the birds in the foreground seem completely relaxed about it. Nice subdued tones and a feeling of foreboding is well conveyed in this shot. Good shot and look after your camera!!

Hi Henryk,
A definite winner, and I have seldom seen so many "favourites" posted on the first day of a shot. The smooth effects on the sand, the swans, and all of the drama and tones of the sea and sky make this a very special shot. Well done, Henryk. It was worth the beating taken by your camera and eyes.

Superb shot. I appreciate the contrast between the quiet resting group of swans and the dark gig in the sky.

Witaj, Henryku!
... nie wiem, co powiedzieć! Niesamowity nastrój! Fantastyczny natłok ołowianych chmur, sztormowa pogoda... i na takim tle spokojne białe łabędzie. Choć widać, że ich spokój jest pozorny, bo tumany rozmytego piasku informują o silnym wietrze, a łabędzi pozycje wyglądają, jak by walczyły, żeby się nie przewrócić. Piękna i ciekawa zarazem scena!

How did I arrive so late to see this excellent photo?!! The capture of the blowing sand is amazing, and the forbidding sky over the black sea is incredible. I've never seen swans on the beach before so that adds yet another dimension. First class work. You deserve all the plaudits for braving the weather, never mind the superb quality of the image.

Hi Henryk,
This is a truly amazing shot! Although it appears to be a little too dark, I actually like that in this situation because it adds so much to the drama of the scene. The colours, with the hints of blue sky behind the clouds and the rich, dark brown of the beach are a nice contrast in themselves. Against the dark, dramatic clouds and the breaking waves on the foreboding sea, they create further, incredible contrasts. I also love the way you've captured the windswept sand and the swans' reaction to it. I know what it's like so the birds have my sympathy!
This pic belongs in a frame on the wall! I'm that impressed with it!

Hugs,
Tony

Hi Henryk. Truly great photo. You can almost feel the wind blasted sand, I shudder at the treatment you give your camera, still the show must go on. You have handled the light perfectly and show the real mood of the scene. Well captured and thanks for sharing.
Cheers, Paul.

Hello Henryk,
You capture a dramatic atmosphere..!
Both clouds and sea cooperate in creating the mood, and contrast strongly the peaceful rest of the birds...
Superb colours and details in this fine stormy composition!

Hi Henryk ,
another great picture I just say great. this picture goes to my favorite. CONGRATULATIONS. have a nice Sunday.
burak
my overall evaluation -> *****

That's a great shot: the colours are really amazing with the swans laying on the seashore and creating a great contrast with the dark menacing sky above them. Good composition.
Well done. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Henryk,
Excellent composition and perfect description to understanding the photo. So much has already been said that there is nothing much left to say, except that this is one of the recent best on TE. Great job friend.

Wittaj,
Wow, this is a highly rated photo with its wonderful play of light and shadows. I also like the uniqueness of the scene you've captured, the grounded gulls are a common sight for me, but those huddled swans are something else!!
Regards P

To me, one of the best photo with animals on TE. Splendid atmosphere, with dramatic sky and those swans trying to hide from incoming storm. Well composed. Simply stunning.

Hello Henryk! Incredibil beautiful composition! Great colours and details! Amazing sky! Very very well done! Lili

Hi, Henryk. The threatening sky is fantastic with all the tones of grey and blue in it. The contrast between the sky and the sand works perfectly well, and so does the contrast between the swans and the sand. The swans in the foreground give depth to your picture. A very well composed image.

Swietna praca. Jednak warto wybrac sie na plaze nawet przy takiej pogodzie:)

Pozdrawiam,

Wojtek

Hi,

Absolutely stunning ... Never seen anything quite like this before. I assume you have done some good amount of PP but the end-effect is a marvel ...

Arunabha

Hi Henryk,
It is an impressive composition, of a scene very difficult to come out in photographs due to the strong wind and the storm that is obvious in the image. The gulls and the swans try to be protected, you have caught it perfectly, one sees the sand that flies because of the wind. The sky gives us fear, is really threatening.
For your note, I see that you had a lot of work cleaning your camera, and your eyes!
Excellent work.
Regards,
Josep

Hi Henryk, it is so nice to visit your gallery, many gems here. I have chosen this one today, because it is as unusual as it is beautiful, unusual subjects (I have never seen swans on the seashore, and the contrast with the distant gulls is fantastic), unusual light and excellent depth of field. My compliments.

Cheers
Alexander

Bonjour
Cette photo est magnifique. Le ciel est superbe et menaçant. J'adore!!
Bye

Hi Henryk,
Thank you for going out in such a weather - you suffer and we enjoy the results :-)
The image truly gives an idea about the weather that day - not only the sea, skies and the flying sand, but the attitude of the birds is what gives the feeling.

Hi Henryk,

perfect colours...I love this, the combination of blue and brown, and the white swans...absolutely stunning shot...

Take care, Ivana

Hello stranger! Long time no see. 228 points and 26 favorites?!?!?! I think you broke the rating system ;-) I can see very well the forces of nature in action and you shouldn't be out there with this weather. I damaged two cameras, because of conditions like this. Scary! But of course, that you must love it!

Bonjour Henryk,SUPERBE photo !!!
D'habitude , la ligne d'horizon doit chevaucher un des points d'or d'une image( on coupe l'image par tiers et l'intersection des lignes apportent un point d'or ). Sur ta photo tu as bien fait de placer l'horizon au milieu ,car le ciel menaçant plânant sur les oiseaux est judicieux .Celŕ donne au ciel l'importance qu'il mérite . C'est pour moi un acteur dans ce paysage .L'impression de froid est ressenti grâce au sable balayé par le vent .
Bravo , j'adore !
Christian .

Flying sand is soooo beautiful, isn't it?
I really like this shot, especially because it's brought alive with the birds.

Good point of view and nice colours.

Well done

Valentina

Wow, awesome, I can see the power of the wind, well done.

AMAZING PICTURE
I'M SPEACHLESS !!!

Wow this is good Henryk
You have a lot of great shots in your gallery, it is a real pleasure to visit!
I like this one a lot. the birds packing themselves to protect them from the flying sand really illustrates the wind.
The light and the colors are very dramatic.
Nice work indeed
Harry

Hi Henryk,
Very nice composition, with superb colors and superb placement of the skyline. The sky with the punishing grey clouds are really extraordinary.
I wish you a nice week. Best regards. Salvator.

Czesc Henryk! Świetna kompozycja z labadkami w roli glownej :) Nigdy nie bylem nad morzem w tym okresie, wiec ciesze sie ze moge zobaczyc jak to wyglada z Twojego pieknego posezonowego zdjecia :) Jak zwykle podoba mi sie dynamika znana juz z innych Twoich prac, swietna kompozycja i to co lubie najbardziej - niesamowite niebo!
Pozdrawiam serdecznie
Maciek

Swietne ujecie, nie wiem czemu, ale jest w tym cos takiego surrealistycznego nieco ;). Mimo ciemnosci i niekorzystnych warunkow barwy sa bardzo dobre i oddaja tamta chwile.

Hi Henryk,
What a WONDERFUL photo with an impressive panorama. Really, we can sense of storm effect. Cevtering, composition, blowing sand effect, colors, amazing sky view are very good. Swans poses are actually so good and dramatic. Well captured shot. Congrats,
TFS,
Best freindly regards,

Witaj Henryk,
very nice this shot with the seagulls on the edge of the coast line.The antithesis between the dark sky and the lighted foreground make the capture marvellous.The perspective and the foaming of the waves create depth in the photo.Informative your note too.

Have a nice Sunday,Danos

very strange view for me. I never guessed to see swans in the beach, we can see them in lakes. I liked this stormy sky menacing the landscape. Beautiful and dramatic view.

Henryk,I see theres no sun involved on the beach but even now the light is great,superbe dark sea and clody sky,the birds are an absolute plus into the picture.
Well done ;]

There is no need to say anything about beautifulness of this photo.
But I have to ask how people use these clouds in effective way.
Without HDR or Polarize Filter is it possible ?.

absolutely awesome ! what a picture, what colors ! congratulations !
